Just Call Me Diana.

Hey guys! Happy Monday :)
I've just recently rediscovered my Diana F lens for my digital camera, and I forgot how much I absolutely adore it. I just love how dreamy the photos come out. GAH! I think this picture of me is just... I don't know how to explain it. I feel like it has a story. New favorite lens? I think so.

What is your favorite kind of picture? Mine is definitely dreamy and full of color or black & white. 
Stay lovely!

What I Wore: A Pastel Sunday

Hey guys! Happy Sunday! Or Happy Easter! Whatever you celebrate :)
I thought I would share with you my outfit for today. Now before you freak out and go WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR HAIR, let me share with you a little story! Yay story time! So, I've been thinking about changing my hair for a while. I've had brown hair with bangs for about a year and a half now, and I was bored. So, being the hair-dye addict that I am, I decided to change it up. I've been wanting blonde hair for SUCH a long time, and I decided to go for it...except it came out red.

I'm not sure how I feel about the red right now. I may keep it for a week or so--enough time to let my hair recuperate before I go blonde. Regardless, at least it doesn't look awful.

Because I just got back from vacation, my family and I aren't doing anything special for Easter. But, because I felt it necessary, I decided to dress in a pale pastel pink in the spirit of spring.

Dress: Forever 21
Purse: Thrifted--Goodwill Clearance Center
Shoes: Thrifted--Salvation Army
Bow: American Apparel

What do you think? Should I go blonde, or keep it red?

I'm trying to be more creative with my videos, and this was this first thing that came to mind!
I hope you enjoy it!

Summer Dreams

Hello everyone!
Guess what I've been doing with my time?
Listening to classical music and online (window) shopping!
I'm so incredibly excited for spring and summer; I can't contain it! My friend showed me this website called Wantworthy which is just a big wishlist comprising of all of the possible online shops on the web. It's absolutely amazing. No longer will I keep tabs open for weeks on end!
Anyway, if you want to check out some of the stuff I've been coveting, the link to my list is here.
All of the pictures of clothing/accessories I am posting can be found on my list, which will direct you to where you can purchase them! Anyway, here are some summer pieces I can't wait to get :)

I've really been loving the yellow/navy/white/red color scheme for summer, so you should be seeing that represented on my blog in the next few months!

Eyeglass Blues

Hello everyone!
I have been needing to get a new pair of eyeglasses since my beloved black pair broke :(
RIP Megan's Glasses
But since this unfortunate event occurred, I am able to brand-spankin' new glasses!
I've limited my options down to three choices and I'm having the hardest time deciding. What do you think?
This violet pair:
This green pair:
This blue pair:

I think I like the violet the best, but the blue would really make my eyes pop!
Anyway, they are all new-old-stock which means they are vintage, but never have been used and in great condition!
A few more things I have been itching to get my hands on are from--surprise, surprise--Modcloth!
These darling shoes:
This adorable dress:
This lovely skirt:
This cute hat:

I absolutely adore every single one of these items, and I am saving up my money to buy at least one!
I hope you found my *wants* slightly entertaining, and maybe it will inspire you to look forward for spring and summer fashion!
As you can tell, I already am :)

Getting Into the Groove of Things

Hey guys!
I keep trying to find motivation to write a new post every other day but for some reason I'm just not finding it. Recently I've really been finding myself not motivated to do a lot of things! Homework is getting increasingly more difficult to do, and I'm just not finding as much enjoyment in life as I usually do.
This morning, while getting ready to go shopping I listened to this song by Ben Folds, Nick Hornby, and Pomplamoose:
Upon listening I had a slight epiphany that went along the lines of "what am I doing with my life?" and "I should make every second of my being mean something, because my time is limited and I can do an incredible amount of good for the world." Upon thinking this, I felt like I should actually start posting more and making more music and videos.
I only have less than a year and a half to live out my childhood and I am going to make the most of it. I have so many abilities I can use to help the world, and I waste them on telling myself I don't have enough time to do anything when in reality I'm only wasting my time.
There ya' go.
If you have had time finding inspiration for anything recently, take a listen to this song and think to yourself:"Am I happy with who I am and what I do with my time?" If you answer no, maybe it's a good time to start making change in the world.

After all, it is your life.
